Sam Querrey cruised into the Indianapolis Championships final with a 6-4 6-4 victory over Frank Dancevic and will face Robby Ginepri, who beat John Isner 6-4 6-3, in the final.

“I’ve trained 150 times with each of those guys, but we’ve never played a (ATP) Tour match. I’ve had three semi-finals here and now I’ve finally gone past that. I feel great, I’ve really improved my movement a lot from last season, that is key.” said Querrey

The world No. 37 also made last week’s final at Newport, Rhode Island, losing to Rajeev Ram.

“Hopefully, I get a win this time,” said Querrey, whose only ATP title came at Las Vegas in 2008. “It’s been a good two or three weeks.”

Querrey led the second set 4-0 before being broken twice by Dancevic, who beat top seed Dmitry Tursunov of Russia in the quarter-finals on Friday.

Ginepri saved all five break points he faced while breaking Isner twice.

“I had a lot of ups and downs in the past years,” Ginepri said. “I am still trying to find the form from 2005, but reaching the final here is very encouraging.

“I am still not as sharp as 2005 but I’m improving,” he added. “I am serving really well and this is probably what got me to the final this week.”
